"Every micro story and theme can be traced back to the meta narrative of the Bible"

Three things covered in this talk:

1. Look at the archetypes of screen-writing

2. See how each represents a Biblical principle

3. Then explain what this means for men. How it begins to set the standard for manhood.

What could someone get from this talk?

1. Think of who you would use to define these archetypes

2. How are you doing at representing this aspect of this example of manhood?

3. Families: How can you encourage and support your husbands, fathers and sons to live out this example?
